REVIEW:

Mick Taylor’s last concert with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers was in Hamburg on 23rd May 1969, this gig in Bremen came just one day before and now this recording has finally leaked after having been confined to tape collectors for such a long time.

A Soundboard from 1969 is something that should be treasured especially because of the occasion that shows a young Taylor that a week before had joined the Stones for their first recording sessions working on “Honky Tonk Women” with him. This gig was originally played in die Glocke or the Bremer Konzerthause and the setlist consists of Mayall’s songs and classics that will be in his repertoire for the years to come such as “Parchman Farm” that features, during its 13 minutes plus, extended organ and harmonica solos by Mayall himself and a nice solo by Taylor too. “Love Me Baby If You Can” leaves some space for Mick Taylor on guitar (as seen on the front cover shot) to show his music ability even if in the context of   the Bluesbreakers in '69 his space was much less than what he had, for instance, in '67 or '68 where his long solos could have run free as shown in the tracks recently broadcasted from the late Bill Graham’s site( www.wolfgangmusic.com ).  Anyway, talking about this product we must be thankful that on a track called “2401” that is Twentyfour-0-one which is in stereo Taylor is finally been given the thumb's up to let it ride with his guitar playing. The last song in this setlist is “Time Has Come” introduced by John Mayall as a totally unknown song , luckily in stereo again, which features a classic Mayall organ solo. There should be another song from this broadcast “All My Life”, but is unfortunately missing from this release.  Despite being about as long as a vinyl album, the CD doubtfully would attract fans and collectors because of its nice cover, but in spite of some inconsistencies in the tracks listing this disc has its' merits.


Regardless of what cover seems to suggest this is John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, NOT M.Taylor's solo concert.
